confused, annoyed, stretch marks, & no weight loss
I have been exercising 4 days a week for up to 4 hours for the past three months. I have been cutting back on my calorie intake. Though I'll admit I have more bad days than good days when it comes to dieting, especially during the weekends. Even with my efforts I have not seem to loss any weight, the only sign of weight loss are strech marks. I really want to loss weight before my senior year of high school. I am devoting this summer to making myself into a healthier, less lazier me. But so far I am confused, annoyed, with more stretch marks, and no weight loss. Though my legs are hard as rock and my calves are really starting to raise up. I am also not a fan of scales & refuse to get on one (too much), I am strictly basing this on how I look in the mirror and how my clothes fit. So what a I doing wrong/right? what should I change? And when should I start seeing results?

Listen It all starts in your HEAD!! You have to make up your mind to stick to your Diet!
The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.  

This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle.  

I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes  

What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter  

It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body.  The link is below

Figure your heart rate by this formula  
The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.  

First thing in the morning before you get out of bed have a clock with a second hand and check your resting heart rate then figure your rate by
checking your pulse for 15 seconds and multiply that by 4 that's your resting heart rate. Now take your age??  subtract that from 220 that is your maximum heart rate  when you do cardio you want to stay between
65%- 85% of your maximum heart rate that would be between  ??
I suggest buying a heart rate monitor that straps around your chest and has a wrist band that shows your heart rate. the ones at your gym that are part of the equipment aren't accurate.  
You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.
